More watercoloring

I used some Distress inks to color the background of this card. Papertrey's Wet Paint stamp set for the sentiment. Some penwork to detail a frame and all on a Raspberry Fizz card base.

Enjoy your day

The Smile You Gave Me

Circle Smile

Not much to say about this card. The circles are cut from a preprinted 12x12 scrapbook paper. I used Papertrey's Building Blocks stamp set for the sentiment.

Partial die cutting

I see lots of partial die cutting in blogland and I love the look of it. This took me a few times to get it right, but I got it. This was a card I made for my dad's retirement.

congrats 1

I popped up the front, die-cut sentiment onto another panel stamped with images from Papertrey's Grunge Me.

congrats 2

I somehow ended up with a small smudge of yellow ink, barely visible to anyone but me!, but I didn't like it so I covered it with another stamped sentiment from Paper Smooches.

MIM 173

I've been playing along with a few of the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenges, but this is the first one in a while that I've actually managed to photograph and blog before the deadline.

Heather's challenge this week was a "no outline watercolor". I've been having such fun with watercoloring!
